These days we can get almost anything and everything on Rakuten and that includes my favourite Japanese snacks that are harder to come across in Singapore! 

Look!! We can now get Cheese Catch Cakes delivered right to our door step :D 

Rakuten is an online shopping mall with many individual tenants and 30% of these stores are from Japan so that explains how we can get products from Japan that aren't available locally!

As part of their ongoing commitment to drive value & fun in the shopping experience, they launched the 5x Rakuten Super Point-back Programme where members (FREE sign-up) get 5% rebate in the form of Rakuten Super Points for purchases made on Rakuten

Members not only get to collect Super Points and enjoy a fuss free check-out process with all their particulars stored on Rakuten's secured system, they will also get firsthand updates on latest promotions! 

New members also receive a one- time SGD5 discount with a minimum spend of SGD20 within 7 days of subscription! 

Okay, back to Rakuten's Super Points. 

With every SGD1 spent, you earn 1 point.
& with every 100 points, you get a SGD1 discount 

That means, with the ongoing 5x Rakuten Super Point-back Programme we get 5 points with every SGD1 spent!!!

Instead of receiving 38 Super Points, we now get 5 TIMES more >>> 38 x 5 = 190 Super Points!!
Just 10 more Super Points to getting a SGD2 discount off the next purchase.

Besides collecting Super Points, I would like to share some other Rakuten shopping hacks with all of you! 

1) Look out for payment discount days 

Occasionally, Rakuten has special partnerships with certain banks and credit card companies, whenever you check out with Mastercard you get an extra 5% discount!!!

Check out the best deals on Rakuten every Tuesday during their Mastercard campaign  HERE

2) Buy in bulk 

The more you buy the cheaper it is AND at the same time, still earning 5x Super Points that can be used on your next purchase.

3) Shop Rakuten's Time Sale under Deals Corner

Jose Eber Clipless Curling Iron at a HUGE discount of 70% OFF!

Dayre - 11/1/16

11.40PM/ The love of my life turns 27 today! 💙 Birthdays seem to be less exciting as we get older. We spent the day at work as usual followed by dinner at Lawry's. 

Lawry's is our favourite steakhouse not only because of their impeccable beef but also because of their exemplary service! 

Hokkaido scallops & shrimps accompanied with mango + strawberry salsa. 

The English Cut, 200g (Medium-rare) for me! Look how soft the meat is all soaked in their special 
sauce 😝💦

The roast beef only comes with mashed potatoes & I'll usually add on creamed corn & creamed spinach #Greedy

Here's a snippet of the menu for those of you who are interested! 

Ain't got time for pictures, just eat 

A photo J got of me before the sun set, quite nice the lighting haha 

A photo memento with compliments from the Lawry's team.

Thanks for making our evening so enjoyable 🤗 

Not ending the post without a #HHootd  😋 Mermaid dress just released on www.hollyhoque.com, pop by to shop & good night!

Bath & Body Works

Bath & Body Works is my favourite place to go to whenever I need a little scent refresh. They are Americas's #1 fragrance brand with over 20 uniquely blended fragrances to suit everyone's personality.

Bath & Body Works sent me the amazing Moonlight Path gift box that includes shower gel, body lotion, body cream & body mist - Basically everything I need to smell good and pamper the skin! 

Bath & Body Works operates nearly 1600 stores based in the United States and more than 100 locations internationally.

The Moonlight Path fragrance is an opulent floral bouquet that captures the essence of moonlit strolls in lush garden.

I love how this scent is refreshing and clean with a slight musky note that isn't overpowering at all!

Bath & Body Works is available at B1-10/11 Takashimaya and B2-42 Marina Bay Sands.
Feel free to head down and test out the scents! Especially NOW because they are having one of their biggest sale ever - Semi Annual Sale.

As many of you may know, J is the other half of Hollyhoque and he has been in the business ever since he completed National Service. There are many perks of being our own bosses and one of it is the flexibility to wear whatever we want to work. 

Besides spending long hours in front of the computer, J is also in charge of the logistics which means that on some days, he'll have to spend a good amount of time on his feet so wearing the right footwear is very important. 

He was recently gifted a pair of Geox Xense leather loafers and has since been wearing it a lot.

Geox is a premier Italian footwear brand that is known for its invention of "the shoe that breathes" - More on that later.

The design of this shoe is not only sleek and trendy, but also very light and comfortable with a flexible rubber sole that allows breathing.

Not to mention the luxurious leather that feels just like second skin!

There are marks on the outsole, but this evidently shows that J has been wearing this pair of shoes often :P

The rubber outsole you see above has enlarged perforation and incorporates a special breathable, waterproof membrane which lets feet breathe while preventing water from penetrating.

He is usually in berms and T-shirt but we were planning on a dinner date after work that day so he put in a little more effort in dressing up.

J wasn't the only one who got new shoes, I received a pair of suede booties in midnight blue (That I love to dearly) from Geox too!

These booties came in the perfect height and I had zero problems walking around in them at all! 

Plushy, fancy, luxe, you get my drift. 

To those who think that booties aren't suitable for the Singapore weather, you're wrong! This  pair of booties demonstrate how versatile GEOX shoes are. No problem wearing them off-winter season! 

Similar to J's shoes, this pair has a perforated outsole paired with a special micro-porous material which expels sweat in the form of water vapour. 

It also prevents water from penetrating the base which means it is extremely suitable for winter holidays! 

Besides a side zip, it also comes with an elastic band around the ankle that makes wearing these booties ALOT easier.

Thanks for the new shoes, Geox!

We are happy Shoenistas!
